Adding a chandelier to your bathroom

Adding a chandelier to your bathroom is a great way to add a touch of unexpected, spa-at-home luxury. A sophisticated fixture above the tub provides a warm, inviting feel that's conducive to indulgent relaxation.


As a general rule, allow for around 8 feet of clearance at the highest edge of the tub; you'll need plenty of clearance when stepping in and out of the tub.

If you have a bathroom with a lower ceiling, or if there's not much clearance above your tub, consider hanging the chandelier in the center of the bathroom. This way you have the option to hang the chandelier lower or use a longer fixture that suits the space.
